Daddy, what did you do in the climate wars?
Note that I used the term bitumen not oil. Some of this stuff is bitumen. It's that blonde skinny girl on the oil and gas happy talk adds on TV that wants to call it oil. Oil because that sounds better to the public, and in fact oil has less carbon in it than bitumen, and carbon when burned makes CO2 which acidifies the oceans and insulates the earth driving up temperatures. There are all kinds of fossil fuels, oil, gas, bitumen, coal, probably others I don't know about.
